Acres and Acres of Rape

Here's some useless information for you...

The neuron in my brain apparently dedicated to thinking about canola oil fired off yesterday and it said, "Hey, what the hell is a canola?"

I conducted a "cyber-search" on the "world wide web" and it turns out there is no such thing as a "canola." Canola oil comes from the seed of the rape plant (a.k.a. rapeseed oil).

The word "canola" is just a combination of the words "Canadian" and "oil". It was coined in the early 1970s since people generally frown upon rape. (Michelle says it actually stands for "Canadian Oil, Low Acid".)

Here's a fun website about the evil canola conspiracy.

Here's a fun website dispelling the evil canola conspiracy.

And here's a book on knitting with dog hair. (Thanks, Jessica!)
